The Sarofim Pavilion houses the Red Duke Trauma Institute, featuring an expansive emergency room, 24 operating rooms, three of which are hybrid ORs, a 332-seat cafeteria and kitchen, 16 ICU rooms, 20 burn units, and three floors containing 36-38 patient rooms per floor. The remaining floors are shell space for future expansion. Level 18 serves as command central for the LifeFlight® John S. Dunn Helistop. The first four levels of the existing hospital tied into the new tower. We also constructed a nine-story, 968-space garage and infrastructure building.
We removed the existing façade on Levels One
through Four and installed a 300-foot temporary wall, mere feet from the hospital’s
skin for protection from weather infiltration. We erected an exterior scaffold
stairwell for workers to access each floor through windows instead of entering
the occupied hospital spaces. We built the temporary wall and scaffold around
the hospital’s surgery schedule, over four weekend shifts, completing each a
few hours before the hospital’s 6 a.m. operations on Monday. The hospital conducted
business as usual with no major infiltration events.
